This paper deals with the linear free vibration analysis of Bernoulli–Euler and Rayleigh curved beams using isogeometric approach. The geometry of the beam as well as the displacement field are defined using the NURBS basis functions which present the basic concept of the isogeometric analysis. A novel approach based on the fundamental relations of the differential geometry and Cauchy continuum beam model is presented and applied to derive the stiffness and consistent mass matrices of the corresponding spatial curved beam element. In the Bernoulli–Euler beam element only translational and torsional inertia are taken into account, while the Rayleigh beam element takes all inertial terms into consideration. Due to their formulation, isogeometric beam elements can be used for the dynamic analysis of spatial curved beams. Several illustrative examples have been chosen in order to check the convergence and accuracy of the proposed method. The results have been compared with the available da...ta from the literature as well as with the finite element solutions.
